  1. 0 I am really on a hunt for GOOD, COMFORTABLE nursing shoes. Any suggestions? Nothing TOO expensive, after all... we are poor students

    Sanita....they are expensive but they have some on sale especially Christmas season. Name sure you get atleast 1 size larger, they are not supposed to be tight....European walking store just had a sale $120.00 were going for $50-80....

    Danskos....they are HARD shoes and take some getting used to, but they are COMFORTABLE. They provide really good support. Yes they 110 or so unless you find them on sale, but it is worth it to put the money into a good pair of shoes. Some people love dansko, some people hate them.....have never heard an in between. Try them on and see how you feel

    With how much time you spend on your feet YOUR BODY will pay the price if you just get a cheap pair to get through. (Whether you get dansko or not spend the money on a good pair of shoes.

    I LOVE my Alagria shoes. Kinda expensive but I was lucky enough to find mine half price and I paid about $50. Doesn't even feel like I've been on my feet all day after wearing them. Definite improvement from the cheap ones and well worth the money.

    My nurse mates are great! I spoke to a nurse when I was shopping for school and she said don't get white danskos because you won't wear them after school is over!! Mine were like $40! And I know when she's are uncomfortable I have horrible back pain and I've done 2 12hr shifts in them and felt great after!

    I don't know...I don't think I care that I won't wear my white nursing shoes after nursing school. After two years of use, I don't think I'd be crying over having to go buy new, more fashionable shoes.
    I spent $80 on white Nikes and they work well for me. No complaints. I never wear them anywhere else and I'll never wear them again after nursing school but they serve my purpose right now!

    Anti-gravity by Easy Spirit. Not toners, although they look like them. They have gel balls in the sole so you are cushioned. I get mine online

    I hate white shoes in general....when they get dirty I think it changes your appearance. My opinion.... So I'd be getting new shoes after school.

    i went with the nursemates but by the end of a semester of 12 hour clinicals they started to break down and my feet were killing me - which ones did you find to last?
